NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety

Classroom, Online and Distance Learning

The NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate now only focuses on Fire Safety and the NGC1 common unit based on general Health and Safety Management issues has been removed - please see the General Certificate which covers this unit.

The syllabus has two assessments, an Open Book Exam accessed online at home, and a Fire Risk Assessment practical.  Delegates have 5 years to pass both units.

Holders of the NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate can help their organisation manage and avoid the risk of fire while also meeting the essential fire safety regulations. Fire safety is important - it not only protects people from injury and loss of life, it also helps protect property, assets and investments.

This NEBOSH qualification is perfect for those who have the responsibility of fire safety in the workplace, health and safety managers, fire marshals and employees in suitable industries. The course is broad and builds an understanding of how to manage and coordinate fire risk assessments.

This course can be studied at our training centre in Hampton, Peterborough or you can learn through our online and distance learning options.
